Reading Lists A Reading List is a compilation made up from comic books in your comic library. You can use lists to organize a group of comic books matching a particular criteria. All the lists are accessed from the sidebar, which, thus, is essential for working with lists. There are 2 types of lists: 1. Custom List: This is a simple list of comic books, made by manually adding individual comic books to it. This is a compilation of comic books for quick access, akin to playlists in a music player. 2. Smart List: This is an ‘automatized’ list, in which you create a rule (or many rules), and ComicRack™ automatically adds all comic books fulfilling the rule(s) to the smart list. As new comic books are added to your library, ComicRack™ auto-updates your smart lists. Create a new folder to organize your lists. You can also create folders within folders. Lists can be dragged and dropped from one folder to the other.

Use these icons to create a new custom list or a new smart list, respectively.

Custom Lists Smart Lists Add comic books to your custom list by simply dragging & dropping them from the browser window, or by clicking Add to list from the browser context menu.

Create a rule by picking a metadata field from the leftmost drop-down menu, choosing an instruction from the second, and filling in a complete or partial keyword in the third (text) field. The Sidebar with all the custom lists & smart lists

Reading Lists can be easily edited. To edit a custom list, you have to manually add or remove the comic books in the the list. This is not possible in smart lists, where editing is done by modifying the rules that constitute the list. Both custom lists and smart lists can be renamed, deleted, moved from one folder to the other, and opened in their own tab or window. You can also add any list to the favorites window by right-clicking on any list and selecting add to favorites. All your list are saved when you backup your database (see database backup section). We shall discuss all the features and functionality of lists in detail in the lists chapter.

?

Can I transfer my lists to another computer ? You can export and import both custom lists & smart lists from and into ComicRack™. Rightclick on any list in the sidebar and select the export reading list option. Save your list to a location of your choice. To import it another computer, right-click anywhere in the sidebar and select the import reading list option.
